The fortune cookies all lied.

Kirk was never home. Although I will keep trying until I find him home to ask him my question. He is my favorite pressman, even though he was a traitor and went to Dayshift. Can say that I blame him...if I had the chance, so would I! Anything to get away from Christina.

Carl....QUIT! However, he did give me his phone number a week ago so at the very least he considered me a friend that he would want to continue being friends with outside of work. He's been unhappy at work for months now, I'm actually a little surprised that he stayed on as long as he did. He was a "no call, no show" though and that doesn't strike me as normal for him. Maybe he was told last time [b/c of car trouble and no cell service] that if it happened again, not to bother to come in...who knows? We do live in a very hilly area where cell service is spotty in some places.

Christina was bitching about how it wasn't fair that she had to fly the inserter for the Daily when the supervisors all know that she has to leave at 3:30 so that she can get to her second job. Uhm.....cry me a freaking river! So what! This job should be her priority as it is the job she had first and is the full time job! Whatever. I hate how she feels entitled to getting out the door earlier than everybody else, like we all have to work to get her out in time. It's not about her! It's about getting the paper done on time! Even on Election night when things are running late b/c of the voting. Maybe especially then.

Hillary took PA. :( But then again, I've heard it speculated that if it came down to her and McCain that McCain would win. Although, I'm not ever sure I like that idea. No offense candidates...but you ALL SUCK this year. Maybe I'll run for president next term...I'll be old enough then {gag}. McKlinko didn't win, even though I voted for him. Hacket won, who I voted for...because his name rhymes with Racket and I figure he'll loose against Carney in the fall. I plan to vote for Carney, because he's the one official who I've emailed...that has actually emailed me back! And like, not SPAM {uh-hum, Hillary!}...or a stupid form reply....but a reply that addressed the issues I had wrote to him about. Unlike Smith who never replied at all...although he does usually post my comments on his blog so I'll give him half a point for that.

To explain the fortune cookie comment....we usually have Chinese food on Saturday nights at work. We all take great delight in reading our fortune cookies, and adding the phrase "in bed" to the end. I had some really great ones this past Saturday night. "You have had a good start. Work harder!" [in bed] "With a little more hard work, your creativity takes you to new heights!" [in bed] "You always know the right times to be assertive or to simply wait." [In bed] "No need to worry! You will always have everything that you need!" [in bed] Ok, it's a silly game, I know that. But when you've already put things into motion to get yourself in bed with a fella, it was kind of encouraging you know. Silly me. Still, I'm not gonna read any more stupid fortunes anytime soon. I might not even order Chinese unless I get laid here soon.

I suppose, enough moaning and bitching for one blog.

Star, it has it's moments! Though I bet there's more excitement uptown in editorial. All I do is wait for the pages they send me ... sometimes ... forever!!! :)
